Keep On Truckin' !

Don poses for this pic on the movie studio backlot. Wish we had this truck, it's a part of TMNT history. Wonder where it is now? We always thought it'd be cool to have this as a Matchbox or Hot Wheels type of toy truck with a tiny turtle figure in it.

Wow, the truck looks totally different with a better light source on it.

Heh, if they can track down an old landspeeder promotional item in a star wars magazine, surely someone can follow the paper trail on this truck :).

I loooove these behind-the-scenes pics!

Cool pic.
I've got another tmnt character question but I'm not sure if you can help or not.
But I'll ask anyway! :P
This one deals with the Mirage character Complete Carnage.
The first time we see him he has no nose and little block like shapes on his head but after his first issue he has a nose and the blocks on his head are replaced with spikes.
So the reason I'm asking is I'm going to make a custom figure of him and want it to be perfect but it seems as if there isn't just one look for the character.
Can you or anyone out there help at all Ryan? I believe Peter told me that Kevin created the character but I could be wrong.
Any help is greatly apricated.

Got any casual "Shredder takes a coffee break" shots from the Behind-The -Scenes archives?

Well Vaughn, IMO, the only
Complete Carnage is the Complete Carnage in Tales #5 with no nose and the blocks on his head. This is the original Eastman design. Any other iteration of the character for me is absolute sacrilege!
And yes, Kevin created CC, although he looks pretty much like Jack Kirby's Demon.

Hmm Gary, will have to look around for a Shredder pic.
We were on the set for only a week but surely should have something with the Shredder.

We remember watching them film his "death scene" at the end of the film.

Vaughn Michael said...

Thanks so much for the answer I was going to ask Kevin but for whatever reason I can't sign up to the Heavy Metal Message Board.
I'm using a Demon figure as the base because the moment I saw the Dc Universe figure of him I said well hell that'd make a perfect Complete Carnage.
Thanks so much for the answer I didn't want to start until I had the word of some one who worked closely on the series and the character.

If you can find any, it'd be awesome to see a candid Shredder shot... it must've been awesome and kinda surreal to be on set during the filming.

I have always wished that someone would have produced a Shredder helmet for costuming, I have never even seen any pics of someone dressed up from a convention.... kinda strange, actually.... it'd be an excellent costume!!!

Pictures Shredder with his feet up on the net crane and reading a news paper, as the Turtles take a coffee break in the net...

poor Donnie, he looks tired, such a long day's work, lol jk, I enjoy seeing these since it's rare to find these pictures anywhere.
